Beauty Bite: Nanacoco Nail Polish in Snowflakes

Have you ever thought to yourself, "I love all of the black-and-white glitter polishes out there, but I wish I could find one that's JUST white glitter?" If so, I've got just the thing for you:

Nanacoco Nail Polish in Snowflakes
(retail: between $0.99 and $1.99 depending on the retailer, 0.54 oz)

One coat of Snowflakes over Vapour Nail Color in Captive (no top coat):

And because I like to "mattify all the glitters," here's what this combo looks like with matte top coat:

  • Inexpensive (Nanacoco ranges from $0.99 - $1.99 depending on the retailer).
  • Unique (I can't recall an all-white glitter polish like this from any other mainstream brand).
  • No "fishing" required--you will have more than enough glitter on your brush each time you dip. You can brush this one on the nail as opposed to dabbing it on.
  • The clear base is not thick or goopy.
  • Might be difficult to find in your area (Nanacoco can be found at indie beauty supplies and Amazon, or you can place a phone order via the Nanacoco website)
  • Long dry-time. You will definitely need a quick-dry top coat for this one, otherwise it will take hours to dry.
  • It's stinky (if you know what Kleancolor nail polishes smell like, it's identical to those).

THE LAST BITE: If you want an all-white matte glitter polish, this baby is for you. No problems at all with application, and in some instances there was actually too MUCH glitter on my brush when I pulled it out of the bottle. The long dry-time and smell might be a deterrent for some, but if you can get past those two issues, we've got a winner here...if you can find it!

Check back soon for more Nanancoco glitter polish reviews...I've got four or five more to show you in the weeks to come!

  1. Nice! Looks like a dupe for the Sephora Formula X Xplosives polish in Wham! :)

  2. Oh that is a gorgeous white confetti coat, love it!

  3. OOOOO. What a beautiful color. Perfect for the holidays. Thank you for sharing!


  4. It looks gorgeous! I will keep an eye out for it, I definitely don't have any all white matte glitters in my collection.

  5. I have a Kleancolor similar to this! So fun and useful!

  6. does anyone know where i can purchase this in maryland? i really wanted the sephora formula x wham nail polish but i'd rather spend $0.99!

    1. I buy mine a shoppers world in greenbelt, MD.

  7. I don't have anything like this and don't have a shot at finding it locally, but I will totally have this in the back of my mind for when I do some Amazon shopping!!! It is really really pretty!!!!

  8. Where can you find this brand of polish? I went to their website and it says "at most major retailers" which isn't really helpful, nor have I seen it at any major retailers. Help?

  9. Can you disclose your secret location in SD where you can find these? I checked my local BSS in the area but no luck. Any help? ;)
